much, sharon. we're not getting as much volatility today as yesterday although ben bernanke's tax did get a little movement. if you look at two-year yield it's slightly elevated and you look at the curve it's know changed. there's a potential for an exit strategy as depicted by that text. if you look at the next chart, indeed the euro versus the dollar has been mostly down, but it is bouncing back a bit especially in the last hour or so, keeping up with the headlines and some of those headlines, hey, the checks didn't have a good day and they sold an additional 150 million u.s. equivalent of their 15 year. they wanted to sell more, but portugal had better luck selling u.s. equipment of the 4 billion of ten-year note and let's hop across the pond and rebecca me ham. >> let's take a check of what's happening in europe and it's all about greece. no surprise there and we check on the fotse, the cac and the dax. 2.4% higher for greek eiquities today. we know we've had the european finance chiefsi having a conference call today. the ecb governing body is having a call tonight and tomorrow a
, you have three big concerns. bernanke's confirmation, slowing china growth and obama slapping the banks around in the aftermath of the massachusetts miracle. i think investors have really focused upon those things and have used those skuexcuses to t profit. >> you don't seem to think things are over. we're due for a pullback and maybe the bull market continues? >> you look at fourth quarter earnings right now and i guess we're about halfway through the season. two-thirds of the company have beaten on revenues. you have consensus earnings for s&p that have now moved up to $76 a share. that puts multiple of a 14 times forward earnings. you have core inflation below 2% year over year. 3.6% treasury yield. multiples are too low. you'll see more corporate earnings improvements and stocks will go higher. >> massachusetts miracle? massachusetts disaster maybe. massachusetts tragedy maybe. >> depends on your point of view. >> i guess it does. i want to get that other side in. >> why are you looking at me? phil is the guest. >> i'm sorry. >> jay, what do you think of that scenario? thi
a big eye there. let's get a check on wall street where fed chairman ben bernanke is making investments nervous. sfoks are down after bernanke outlined the ways fed can pull back on the $1 trillion being used to prop up the economy. today's house financial services commity hearing was postponed because of the snow in d.c. the fed decided to release bernanke's prepared remarks anyway. so we are going the keep our eye on how the markets respond there throughout the day. you can see as we stand still above the 10,000 mark but down 37 points on the day. stocks are low on fears any move by the fed to pull out money from the financial system could hurt the recovery. >>> the sex scandal surrounding john edwards is back in the news. today's the deadline for former aide to turn over an alleged sex tape. senior investigative correspondent lisa myers joins me now. has he done it yet? is the plan that he will turn it over during a court hearing? >> well, as of a couple of hours ago the tape was in the sheriff's office in north carolina. and was going to be delivered to the court around 2:00 today w
, on the american economy out of the troyka of key u.s. financial leaders, ben bernanke, timothy geithner, and larry summers. the great majority of your votes were not surprisingly for ben bernanke. some saying he was brilliant and deserving of a medal of honor. others like josh sitterowitz of new york thought bernanke's actions were detrimental. "by bringing interest rates down to near zero, he has set the stage for roaring inflation." and one member said it wasn't member of that troyka who deserve credit for saving the american economy, it was the people who pay taxes. this week, i want to know how likely it is that we'll see a resolution of the israe israeli/palestinian conflict in the text ten years. don't forget to give your name and where you live. also, as always, i would like to recommend a book. it's called "come back, america." turning the country around and restoring fiscal responsibility. it's about what everybody was talking about in davos last week and in washington this week. america's crushing governmental debt. president obama's new budget forecasts an astounding $1.6 trillion defic
for the world economy if they do. >> what about the drama around ben bernanke. he was confirmed for a second term in the senate as chairman of the federal reserve. was it justified? is that deserved? separate three, fed kept interest rates unchanged. any surprises? >> well, it would have been pretty scary if they hadn't confirmed him. i mean, what it would say is congress wants to run the fed. there are other good candidates but ben has done a great job the last year especially, and it just wouldn't have been good for congress or for the institution if he wasn't. >> laura? >> i agree completely. this has been tied up with discussions that many members of congress have about really trying to weaken or take power away from the fed. >> are you concerned about the independence of the fed? >> i am. i am absolutely. >> why? tell me. >> congress got a look at what it can do. congress knew it could set interest rates but oh, my gosh they can print a couple trillion dollars of debt. they can buy consumer loans. we don't want someone to have that kind of power. so it makes them want to get in on that
news from ben bernanke, who gave testimony to nobody because of the snow. testimony which said he isn't going to tighten until the economy gets better, bizarrely. those comments initially send the market down hard. it made me think, what does the market say, what is wall street saying to him. they wanted to say, i'm going to plug the market with money even if things get good. would they have preferred them to tell us all is well, and i'm tightening right now? thankfully bernanke continues to do the right thing. i'm calling him the grown-up in chief. finally, i think we're going to see a real stimulus package coming out of congress. a bipartisan effort that will produce real jobs that use real equipment and fix real infrastructure. are you listening my friend? that's big news. it signals that the administration may be able to walk, chew gum and botch health care reform all at the same time. the bottom line, we slip through obama and china today. maybe this is the beginning of something big that will permanently sideline our two least favorite sea monsters. or maybe it's just a breather
of weeks, barack obama has crossed a rubicon. he had a chance to get rid of ben bernanke and replace him with someone like john taylor. he had a chance to get rid of tim geithner. he didn't do that. >> okay, peter, it sounds like a series of things in your view. i have got leave it there. we have breaking news over at the breaking news desk. steve? >> thanks very much. we have talked to senator she y shelby's office. his office is telling us the senator shelby still believes that regulatory reform bill is still possible this year. they reveal there has been an area of agreement that we didn't know about that they agreed on the idea of a consolidated regulator. where the disagreement is over the issue of consumer protection. dodd wants consumer protection part of the agency to write its own rules. shelby said consumer protection rules must coordinate with safety and soundness. no agreement on resolution authority and other areas. dodd says there is an impasse that doesn't mean that regulatory reform is dead. shelby's office believes it is possible. >> tax issues, health care, still very
for ben bernanke and the federal reserve, that there is a very substantial penalty for early withdrawal. we're seeing china and india tighten, now europe withdrawing its liquidity facilities. the u.s. would do well to mind this lesson. if we start to syphon off some of the liquidity, there really could be hell to pay. what we're seeing, when you mention gold, the deflation trade is being put back on. the dollar is going up, gold is going down, oil is collapsing, commodities across the board have been very weak. equity markets are falling all at the same time while domestic rates drop. for anybody worried about inflation in united states, the dollar is going up, u.s. rates are going down and the u.s. on a relative basis is still the safest market in the world no matter what anybody sayless. but there is a danger if the fed doesn't heed the lessons of what's going on elsewhere in the worldtion we, too, could face some of the problems like europe, although our banks are in better shape than yours. >> which is why, rick santelli, the china trade, you want to buy anything that need, we saw t
concerns that the market has across the spectrum. and you've got bernanke talking about higher rates. fed funds are pricing in almost 100% probability that we have rates lower in march. if we start to see more rhetoric out of the fed with respect to what they're going to do with the rates, that is outside of market expectations right now currently. >> what are you telling people tow to do snt. >> right now, volt tilt is at a level to finance shorter purchases and hedges. given the uncertainty, i don't think it's fair to say that volatility is expensive on the front end. >> anthony, real quick, berna e bernanke's exit strategy speech yesterday, does it move up your sense of the timing for when the fed will ultimately tighten? >> it really didn't, steve. the federal reserve basically injected $1.5 trillion in the liquidity in the credit crisis. it would be irresponsibility of the fed to not outline a credit strategy. i think he made it very clear that he wanted to give us the thumb nails strategy of what this is going to be like. is he going to normalize the discount rate? yes. but remembe
and bernanke. cisco's numbers come right at the close. >>> visa is also reporting quarterly numbers after the bell. in today's fast money final call we'll tell you how to take your position on that. fast money contributor joining us now. good to see you. >> great to be with you, judge. >> got to be quick here. what are you expecting from visa after the bell? >> as it trades down to the lows of the day like you and maria have been saying, a lot of financial stocks. >> both down today. >> visa's got earnings after the bell today. i'm bullish on that because of unusual call buying and that's right after the bell. 91 cents. and/or positive guidance, that's what we're looking for. master, tomorrow morning, before the market opens and we don't have any reading on that one. but i am long visa. >> is visa, part of it is that the debit card business continues to do well. as people are perhaps charging less and going to the debit card? >> you bet. as well as the sheer transactions, because these guys are just a through-put, they're not taking the risk on the other side of the trade. so regardless o
chairman bernanke's confirmation was in doubt. all of a sudden they dialed it back. this budget is part of that dialing back. >> let's talk about that, andrew. the financial responsibility fee, better known as the bank tax, is in the budget. what kind of details are in it? because jaret says the language has been pared down quite a bit. >> people were selling into any financial strength across the board. you have volcker testifying tomorrow. although jaret brings up good points, the reality of this is that the risk is not in the budget. the risk is with the next announcement from volcker. or the treasury department and bank of america signing on to this second lien modification program which they did last week. that's where the real worry of wall street is. and you saw energy hold up today. you saw health care sell off for about an hour after the budget came out. and then it recovered to about flat as i was leaving the office. but across the board today, long and short, i mean, we were seeing sellers of financial stocks into strength. >> what about, andrew, when you look at the other ta

for the u.s. in 2 1/2 years at around 0.5%. and looking at what bernanke said this week, gave us a laundry list of ways to exit the strategy, basically, and he basically talked about, you know, the possibility of increasing interests on bank reserves. and while in basically contrast, the ecb is not going to do the exit strategy. it's going to stay in and maybe in too deep right now as it may need to provide some liquidity out of what happened from greece. so that will definitely give the yield luster for the u.s. dollar. >> so what target would you put on euro/dollar? >> still looking at 1.32% before the end of the quarter. any bounce, really, is going to be more of the corrective bounce, not more than 1.3950. >> i was wondering, what do you see the likelihood of a new and increased quantitative easing effort by the ecb, either in a direct like we've seen in the u.s. or uk and a continuation of the currency? >> look, even though they said they are not going to provide renewed 12-month loan facility, the ecb, this institution that has been seen as one of the first institutions to get out of

bernanke is in, senator. >> yes, he is. >> that's all right with you, though. you're going to be okay, right? >> i'm going to be okay. i offer my congratulations. but i think it does accepted a message to be confirmed by the lowest margin in history, sends a message about the concern about the role he played and the build-up to the crisis. >> yeah, but senator, you were ready to take the other side, knowing he would get confirmed, and your constituents can still say, well, at least this senator took the populus side. took the. >> i took the position as the only democrat taking that position after a careful review of the things he stood for, alignment with greenspan, failure to resfond derivatives. the failure on consumer protection, the things you are talking about in terms of prepayment penalties and liar loans and so i think he failed on many fronts but he is there now and i hope he does a great job on monetary policy and gets consumer protection in an agency that will care about it. >> senator, thanks. you have to keep coming back. >> thank you. >> oregon, oregon. i know how to say

with bernanke and for some reason there have been just no real uptick generally about the fact that those types of things already are prohibited. you can only use a minimal amount of the bank's capital in other areas of a bank holding company. in addition to that, it actually move capital permanently, you've got to reduce the capital of the commercial bank also. so i do wonder -- >> yes, go ahead. basically, you're saying that those who think this is simply a punitive move by the obama administration are right. am i reading you correctly? >> well, let me say this. look, paul volcker is like a folk hero here? there's no question. his inflation efforts were tremendously appreciated and the timing of the announcement, i think everybody on all sides are transparently political. that doesn't mean, that look, we don't need to continue to look at ways of dealing with this. i don't think it got a great reception yesterday. again, we've got one more hearing tomorrow with goldman and others and we'll drill down in another way, but my sense is there's not a lot of traction on it because there are mechanis
